Antonio Gates's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP WITH DOWNWARD TREND PROJECTED FOR 2019

Antonio Gates was not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He was the number #27 ranked TE and the #533 ranked player overall. Even though he missed a few games he played enough so that his overall fantasy rank was better than what it was based on average fantasy points (#47 TE). His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 4 games he averaged 4.2 FPs and that declined to 1.9 in his final 5 games. His fantasy production is more volatile that most players based on having a relatively high standard deviation. When he is good, he is really good but when he is off, he is really off. He averaged 3.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 14 fantasy points. Antonio Gates (2019 Season Projection: 23 Rec, 262 Yards, 1.9 TDs) is projected to take a significant step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #50 player at his position.
